The Probiotics Revolution

Dr. Gary Huffnagle, a professor of immunology at my alma matter, the University of Michigan Medical School, has written a fine book about the importance of adequate good bacteria in the digestive tract. Now if we can just get the university folks to accept food allergies, lack of digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid, and yeast overgrowth as very important co-existing factors in digestive problems, we will really have a revolution. Most of our very common digestive disorders would be solved.

Common sense and observation by the medical field would enable them to see these factors as genuine problems for a number of their patients. That would in turn enable them to better help the patients they care for.
